Problem

Triangle $\displaystyle ABC$ is isosceles, with $\displaystyle AB=AC$ and altitude $\displaystyle AM=11.$ Suppose that there is a point $\displaystyle D$ on $\displaystyle \overline{AM}$ with $\displaystyle AD=10$ and $\displaystyle \angle BDC=3\angle BAC.$ Then the perimeter of $\displaystyle \triangle ABC$ may be written in the form $\displaystyle a+\sqrt{b},$ where $\displaystyle a$ and $\displaystyle b$ are integers. Find $\displaystyle a+b.$
